AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — goodblendTM Texas, a vertically-integrated cannabis operator and retail brand of Parallel, one of the nation’s largest privately-held multi-state cannabis companies, is proud to announce the goodblend CannaBus tour 2021. This first-of-its-kind mobile cannabis dispensary and educational tour across the state of Texas will bring awareness to the state’s medical cannabis program and provide a simple experience for prospective patients who need a medical cannabis prescription. Kicking off in Austin, Texas, on October 14, with multiple stops in Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio, the tour will culminate on November 20 in Houston.
This goodblend CannaBus tour follows Texas House Bill 1535, which significantly expanded access to the Texas Compassionate Use Program (TCUP, Program) by adding Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and all forms of cancer to the list of qualifying conditions. With the addition of these conditions, millions more Texans now qualify for the TCUP. Today, less than ten thousand patients are currently registered in the Program.
«While it’s great news that more Texans with specific conditions may be eligible to benefit from the Texas Compassionate Use Program, the challenge is that most Texans simply do not know that medical cannabis exists as a treatment option or that it may help address debilitating pain, inflammation, muscle spasms, stress and anxiety, and sleeplessness,» said Marcus Ruark, President of goodblend Texas. «We aim to help bridge this gap through Texas’ first goodblend CannaBus tour for education and awareness. The CannaBus tour represents how goodblend Texas intends to lead the way to the future of cannabis by providing patients a trusted, approachable way to demystify how to access medical cannabis and to educate on the potential benefits of our array of high-quality products, many of which are firsts in Texas.»
